Admittedly, I’m not really much of a Marvel fan – not that I don’t like it, but I just don’t know much about the franchise in general. That being said, I still find it pretty exciting to hear that Rachel McAdams may or may not be in talks for the lead role in the upcoming Doctor Strange movie, because I love Rachel, so I’d basically watch her in anything (though True Detective is really testing my patience).
According to my sourcing here in Los Angeles, the rumor I’m hearing is that Rachel McAdams, currently starring in the second season of True Detective, has been offered the female lead in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange. Scott Derrickson is directing the film based on the screenplay by Jon Sphaits. Benedict Cumberbatch is headlining as the Sorcerer Supreme.
Stay tuned as more develops and I will update the story as I find out more.
Before he met the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange was an unlikeable egotistical neurosurgeon. Everything changes when a car accident limits Strange’s use of his hands, sending him on a maddening quest for a miracle cure. This origin story introduces the magical and mystical realms of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Those of you who are Marvel fans, what do you think? Good move, bad move? I guess time will tell if there’s any merit to this one!
Have any of you guys been watching True Detective? The second season is better than the first insofar as that I actually got through the first episode (and watched the second), but it’s still a little strange and I don’t particularly care about any of the characters yet, which is a shame because I love Rachel McAdams. You know who else loves her? Her co-star, Taylor Kitsch, because they’re apparently dating after striking up an on-set romance.
“It hasn’t been long,” says an insider. “But it’s serious.”
The Canadians, who recently wrapped the HBO drama’s second season, have been “friends for years,” adds a second McAdams source. “They grew closer on set.”
“I don’t know if it’s full-blown love yet, but they talk constantly,” another source confirms. “They’re really into each other. She talks about him all the time!”
Well… that’s cute, I guess? I mean, Rachel is way too beautiful for any earthly creature besides, maybe, Ryan Gosling, and we all know that ship has sailed. I don’t think this relationship with Kitsch will last very long, but hey, I guess enjoy it while it’s there.
Also, I love that Rachel tries to say in interviews that she’s not into on-set romances, but this is like, her third one. LOL, okay, girl.
I know people are still batshit over Mean Girls, even though it came out 9 years ago now, and I can vaguely see why. It was written by Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams is in it, pre-drug-addled Lindsay Lohan is in it, and yeah, it’s pretty hilarious and all that. I mean, I don’t know that it deserves the god-like status it’s given, but I can dig it. Which is why I think you’ll dig this deleted scene that was just released:
I can sorta see why they cut it, to be honest. Though I always welcome Amy “Cool Mom” Poehler in any form.
I really wasn’t into the first season of True Detectiveand found it boring, but you’d best believe I’m on board for Season 2, not only because my girl Rachel McAdams is in one of the starring roles, but also because from the look of the first trailers we’ve seen so far, it looks like it’s going to be pretty damn good. The first teaser was a bit hard to interpret given that the entire thing was dubbed with music and there was no dialogue, but HBO released a new preview this week that sheds a bit more light on what we can expect:
HBO is doing a pretty good job of building up suspense for this – I seriously can’t wait for Season 2 to premiere next month. It’s gonna be excellent, I can tell.
How great is Rachel McAdams? I just had to start out by saying that because I think she’s fantastic and pretty underrated (even though, you know, not really since she gets plenty of work). I don’t really know why I like her, but I do. Anyway, while she’s mostly spent her time on the big screen, next up we’ll be seeing her as one of the stars of True Detective Season 2. Vince Vaughnis in it as well, as is Colin Farrell, and it actually looks pretty good. Certainly seems like it won’t be as slow as the first season, and I’ll totally watch it.
Rachel is pumped to be playing the role of hard ass officer Ari Bezzerides and shared her excitement in the new issue of Marie Claire:
“I love that she’s not the girlfriend or the wife. She doesn’t really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people’s feelings. She’s not trying to be charming, which isn’t always the case with a leading lady. There’s [usually] sort of a responsibility to be a little bit likeable… Not that you want to be a horrendous character, just a little more human.”
Sounds good to me! The preview for Season 2 of True Detective is below, so tell me: Did you watch Season 1 and will you watch this one?
I have to admit, I really couldn’t get into True Detective’s first season. I like Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson alright, but I just found it so slow, and not in a slow burn type of way, but just a ‘boring as hell’ one. Apparently it got way better if you were able to hang on for the first six episodes, but sorry, I’m not willing to give anything more than half its run just to get good.
That being said, I’m definitely on board for season 2. Rachel McAdams is the lead this time around, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch also starring. The first teaser trailer was released on Thursday, but it doesn’t really give us too much of a hint of what to expect, other than guns, police, crime and a shit ton of violence.
Will you be tuning in for the second season of True Detective? Do you think it’ll be as boring as the first (or did you think the first was great)?
And it’s nice, of course. Boooooo, give us goss! Anyway, here’s what she told Allure about working with Lohan, and none of it involves the words “cocaine” or “unprofessional.” Crazy! Via ABC News:
If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.
Yeah yeah, blah blah, tell us something real, McAdams.
